The change of seasons is here, and with football season and pumpkin spice flavored everything, there comes diminishing daylight hours.

With reduced daylight hours, there's a good chance that construction activity is happening in low-light conditions that your construction camera may not be designed for. Dark, blurry, or just plain bad photos can be a sign that condiitions are too dark for your camera.

It's conditions like these where low light construction cameras come into play.

What are Low Light Construction Cameras?

Low light construction cameras have all the features of traditional construction cameras, but include additional technologies that enable them to document projects with incredible clarity even in low light conditions, providing construction teams with timely photo and time-lapse movie updates regardless of how much or little light there may be at the job site.

Features such as ultra light-sensitive and infrared sensors help low light construction cameras excel in dim job site conditions by making maximum use of whatever light is available, including naturally occurring and artificial infrared light.

This ability to sense and utilize a wider spectrum of light provides users with access to higher quality photos and videos of their projects under even the most challenging lighting conditions, thus helping to keep teams updated and projects on schedule throughout the darker months of the year.
